Hommage à Soupert & Notting

Bourbon Climbing Rose
Breeder: Fabien Ducher 2006

Height: 200 cm
Planting distance: 100 cm
Powerful fragrance

In 1875, the famous French rose grower Pernet-Ducher dedicated a beautiful mossy rose named ‘Soupert & Notting’ to his Luxembourg colleagues. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the first Luxembourg roses coming onto the market, in 2006, Fabien Ducher, a sixth generation nephew of Pernet, launched a new rose in honour of the pioneers of rose growing in Luxembourg. The climbing rose ‘Hommage à Soupert & Notting’ was named in the gardens of the former residence and workplace of Soupert & Notting in Limpertsberg by H.R.H. the Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg.

The buds open out into dark pink double flowers with a touch of silver which exude a strong fragrance, and the petals are nicely arranged like slices of fruit on an apple tart. This rosebush doesn’t do well in gloomy weather and requires an airy location in order to prevent cryptogamic diseases.
